|[Eg0_027] Man dies, only genetics never die - Crepusculo|
After a first net release on Silent Season, Crepuscolo (a one-person project based in Mongolia) offered his second opus to Eg0cide productions. There is no disappointment with this new album of deep organic ambient blended with cold, surgical, electronics. "Man dies, only genetics never die" consists of 3 tracks based on enigmatic shifting drones, whose hypnotic qualities are sometimes enhanced by a discreet, muffled - almost subliminal- beat...

|[Eg0_018] Digital Mass - Shatter Fog - Digital Mass|
"Shatter Fog" is the first official release of Digital Mass, a collaborative ambient/experimental act. Their members want to remain anonymous, the only thing to know about them is that the number of people involved in this project is subject to changes depending on the albums. So let's focus on their music and enter into their experimental soundscapes, amongst abstract foggy drones, occasional minimal beats, parasited sound transmissions from other planets and/or an antediluvian past...

|[Eg0_058] Sithwomb : Chiss Ascendancy - Sithwomb|
Chiss Ascendancy is already Sithwomb's 3rd release on eg0cide, and we find that this is his more achieved and powerful work so far - great minimal & spacey dark drones, inspired by the Star Wars universe.

|[Eg0_056] Demagolka : Strenuus (remastered) - Demagolka|
Demagolka is one of the other projects of the person beyond Sithwomb (who has already 2 releases on eg0cide). Strenuus was self-released some time ago but we thought it deserves more exposure. Furthermore these raw & bleak minimalist soundscapes fit perfectly Eg0cide's catalogue. For this occasion, it has been remastered by the artist, who defines the style of this album as "hollow drone"

|[Eg0_065] Norss : Alleen - Norss|
Norss was a dark ambient / drone / noise project active in 2008-2009, who released limited CD-R on various labels, most of them being now out of print. Eg0cide always thought that many of them deserve a second "digital" life. We agreed with Norss that the album "Alleen" was one of his best works - so we are glad to re-release these utterly dark minimal drones. Re-release notes by Norss : "Alleen was originally released on CDR in a run of 20 copies...

|[Eg0_033] Invisible maze in the black hole - Crepusculo|
The mysterious mongolian act Crepusculo is back on eg0cide with a new album of minimalist dark ambient. Its thick basses, cold drones and clinical pulsations will hypnotize you repeatedly until you wonder whether you are discovering unknown life forms on a supposed desert planet, trapped into the microscopic world of viruses and bacteria, or simply the subject of some weird psychoacoustic experiments with sounds being injected directly into your nervous system.

|[Eg0_017] Lusruta - Sailing The Sea Of Nothingness - Lusruta|
Despite being Lusruta's first official release, "Sailing the sea of nothingness" is a very mature and achieved recording. This epic droning piece could remind you of Steve Roach's most minimal works like "darkest before dawn" or "a deeper silence" but it has an undoubtedly personal touch... ...Lay down and close your eyes...The sea of nothingness is loaded with powerful bass resonances and discreetly illuminated by an etheral starlight...You are floating, or flying, or drowning - or maybe simply...

Spleen is an one-man project from Serbia which mixes dark ambient and atmospheric rock. Detest is an epic concept album dealing with the theme of misanthropy. It starts with an hypnotic ritual sequence, but later tracks also contains lots of industrial rock elements. All along the album, bleak drones, crushing guitar riffs, pounding rythms and haranguing voices join their forces to take the listener into a world of morbid fixations and reclusive anger ...

Back from a short tour in USA, the anonymous canadian drone collective Digital Mass has recently created a sequel to a previous long-from drone The Murk, (already released by Eg0cide last year). Bleaker, colder than the 1st issue, this new track is like a slow descent into some unknown caverns. Minimalist dark ambient at its best

Icoste is a solo project of electronic musician Stéphane Jeanin from Belmont, USA. Dysthymia is one of his most experimental works to date. This amazing album has an overall opressive and dark tone expressed through various means : eerie floating voices, mysterious drones, swirling alien pads that sometimes turn into noisy electronic storms. The whole forms a deep sonic experience that becomes more and more powerful track after track, culminating with the complex and crushing rythmical sequence...

The only sound source used by TGBTS is guitar (often prepared and processed by some software treatments) to create dissonant experimental tunes and foggy dark soundscapes. Tracks available here were selected and compiled in end of april 2007, from 5 or 6 hours of ugly lo-fi crap recorded between december2006 and april 2007. They have many flaws in playing and/or recording but TGBTS has decided to make them available as the most representative (and hopefully less annoying) pieces of its new sonic...
